Yesterday, in between meetings I had little time to kill, so I wandered into Bershka for the first time in years. I’ve always found it a little young for me, so it’s just not on my radar. Yesterday I spotted a range of sportswear in the window, and considering I spend most of my time in my gym kit these days, I’m always excited to see fashion and sports mixing together. In the past I’ve written several posts about my favourite sportswear brands – and surprisingly they’re not always the big names (H&M and GAP are a few of my surprising and affordable finds).

Anyway, that’s how I ended up in Bershka. Ever since I’ve started taking my exercising seriously last year, I’ve found that when I feel like I look nice doing it, I’m far more inclined to go out and actually do it. Just because you’re working out, doesn’t mean you have to look like a slob. In fact, when I buy some new workout kit, I can’t wait to go out and wear it, and anything that encourages me to work out can only be a good thing.

By the looks of it, Bershka’s collection ticks all the right boxes, mixing functionality with some badass style – and all at affordable prices. I’m mildly obsessed with the see-through cropped cape (which I’d happily wear over my regular clothes), the dip-dye sports leggings, the neon sports bras, snake print and even faux-leather running shorts! Totally genius. (well, if we ignore the fact that inexplicably there’s wedge trainers and a pair of perspex heels in the same range)

Bershka’s sportswear collection is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a gym kit with a bit of edge.
